Composer Ferdinand Ries is dusted off and taken out for a roller-coaster ride!
Original early 19th Century stippel angraving of Ferdinand Ries
Yet another nugget mined on Youtube!
Ferdinand Ries, Beethoven's major domo for a time makes a comeback in this most original video. The Zurich Chamber Orchestra utilizes the violin line from the score of the 4th movement of Ries 2nd Symphony to spectacular effect as a roller coaster for their latest promotion! Fasten your seat belts, it is quite a ride!
We recommend for full effect, click on the Youtube link above, go to their site and enlarge to full screen!
Kudos to Creative Director Axel Eckstein, of EURO RSCG, Zurich for this marvelous and original video!
